The Wood River City Council is moving forward with a plan to redevelop the former Lincoln School property on North Wood River Avenue.  The city took possession of the property a couple of years ago, and now that the property has been leveled, the city has accepted a Request for Proposals to turn the lot into a subdivision with 10 - 12 houses.

Wood River City Manager Jim Schneider tells The Big Z Lantz Homes of Edwardsville will be doing the work.

He says there are meetings scheduled today to discuss the layout of the subdivision, and hopes to see construction underway by late summer on two houses.
